In Stata 7 (Intercooled or SE) the only way to get a blue color
is by doing something that allows clicking.  For instance in a
smcl display you might have "... {help regress} ..." and the word
"regress" would be in blue and clickable.

It was decided that it was very important for blue == clickable
and clickable == blue in all cases (no exceptions).  The only
reason that -display in blue ...- still works in Stata 7 is for
backwards compatibility.  Old code still works, but instead of
displaying blue it will use green.  We felt that this was better
than causing the code to break.
